Overview

Monkey around at Paradise Wildlife Park, with this once-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll be shadowing a monkey keeper, as they care for gibbons, squirrel monkeys, marmosets, tamarins and lemurs (not strictly monkeys but we won’t hold that against them). Prepare and serve food for the monkeys and lemurs, help clean their enclosures and even make toys and other items for their amusement! You’ll get to explore the Wonders of the Rainforest exhibit, with a guided tour so you can ask any questions you like of a monkey expert. Once you have said goodbye to the Primate Team you’ll be free to explore the huge park, home to over 400 animals. You should arrive early and stay late to fit it all in, and make this truly a day to remember!

Brilliant day!
27 September 2018
Had a brilliant day shadowing a monkey keeper for the morning! I had no problems arranging to be collected by their bus service (5-10 minute drive) and they dropped me straight at the discovery centre where I was asked to meet the team. On arrival I was offered a range of drinks and biscuits, before reading through some rules for the experience. I then met the keeper I would be shadowing, and we went straight to the lemur enclosure where I got to hand feed these lovely animals. She was very knowledgeable and could answer all the questions I threw at her. It was great having the lemurs sit on my lap and jump around the enclosure, and the keeper was more than happy to be my personal photographer. Afterwards we went to prepare food for the marmosets and squirrel monkeys. I was disappointed that for safety reasons they no longer allow people to go in with these monkeys, but it was still enjoyable feeding them insects through the bars. We also cleaned their toys and the windows as these get pretty messy. I was then left to explore the rest of the zoo. Unfortunately I forgot to pick up my gift bag at the end of the day, so cannot comment on what this included. I would also advise to bring your own lunch if going on a weekday, as only one of the food places was open, and unfortunately they rather under-cooked my food (vegetarian so this didn't actually cause any issues). Overall though it was a brilliant day, and I was very pleasantly surprised at the range of big cats and how close you could get to their resting platforms for photo opportunities.

My wife bought me shadow a monkey keeper for my birthday. I called them with a few dates and booking was very easy. Park found easily but queue to exchange tickets very long so went to another booth to not miss the start time. Experience was great. Got to sit with and feed the lemurs in their enclosure. See where the animal food is stored and prepared for all the park. Meet the squirrel monkeys and do all aspects of monkey keeping (cleaning their enclosures) and learnt about the various species. Spent approximately 1 1/2 hours and I would do it again. Such a great experience :-)

A great day!
18 January 2018
The day started with a tour around the monkey sanctuary, where this was very educational and gave us a good insight on how they live. Then I was brought into the actual home of where some monkeys stayed and helped the zookeeper with a few bits. Then came the best part of the experience, meeting the lovely lemurs. I instantly fell in love with them! Got to feed them and hold them for a while, learning about them aswell. The zookeeper was great, overall I great gift!

Most Amazing Experience!

My day as a Shadow Monkey Keeper was a brilliant gift. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and was well looked after by two very experienced keepers. Lots of photos and my partner was able to be with me for 90% of it. Recommend to all those who love primates! ????.
